Endoscopy Ultrasound is highly recommended for diagnosis of pancreatic diseases like lumps, tumours, cysts, or acute pancreatitis. If your doctor finds any abnormality during CT scan and MRI of the abdomen, then endoscopy ultrasound is required. Any sign of abdominal pain, abnormality in blood tests, heart blockage, a cavity in the lungs or abdomen, gallstone, requires endoscopy ultrasound referral.
Steps to take before Endoscopic Ultrasound
Your surgeon may ask you to:
During the procedure
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia or sedative. You will lie on a treatment couch, to help insert the endoscope tube inside your mouth, and then you have to swallow it. The ultrasound probe on the tip of the tube will transmit pictures on a screen. You will not feel anything during the procedure. After the procedure ends, the endoscope will be pulled out.
After Endoscopic Ultrasound
You will be monitored for some time after the procedure, which lasts for about 20-30 minutes. You will be allowed to go home the same day. But, you have to arrange for someone to drive you home as the sedative used might make you feel drowsy. If you feel any kind of symptoms such as stomach pain or nausea, consult with your doctor at Medanta.
